Lexia Member Posts: 1,179 ✭✭✭✭✭

We wanted to add a bit more to this years NML Anniversary celebration, and are going to put together a 7th Anniversary Challenge mapset with maps you have voted on! 🗺

Now we know there are maaaaany maps available, so let's start with some open suggestions from you all first. Please share in this thread which Challenge map you would like to have in the upcoming Anniversary mapset. Please keep it as ONE map suggestion in one comment, and everyone, please vote on some of your favorite suggestions with reactions on those comments. We'll choose a set amount of maps for a final vote later on.

Please include the name of the map and/or an image of the map in the comment, so we and everyone else will be able to identify it 🙃

The deadline for suggestions is on Monday 10th of October at 12PM UTC.

    It’s actually quite tricky to think of my favourites  :)

    Usually my ‘favourite’ each week is whichever one is easiest  :D

    But I really like @Firekid’s suggestion above, that’s a fun map

    I like this map for 2 reasons:
    1.its fun and tricky map
    2.it’s only for melee so more fun 😎

    I like the maps with Whisperers, especially when it's hard to tell which zombie is the human (so with many zombies in the beginning). Those maps work out differently every time you play them. Sorry can't think of a specific map name

    Hopefully others will suggestion some of my other favourites so I can vote on them. 
    I don't think they said only 1 suggestion per person, just 1 suggestion per post. If you have more suggestions, I'd love to hear them!

    Could we not just have lost bunker x6 with HDaryl as star hero, breeze to a 5358 in 2 hours and then get hammered? Sign of a good birthday is no work and lots of alcohol :sunglasses:

    My favourite set is the Alexandria one, for nostalgia and the fact that there are many heavy melee friendly maps. Good neighbours being my pick of the bunch. It's also somewhat of a challenge at nightmare.

    Ooh nice, you are right. I’ll let some other people pick first and if my others don’t come up I’ll post them later. Good neighbours was one of them so glad that’s been chosen already.

    It might be fun to raid some (abandoned) Outposts!

    Give the Governor as a star hero in the King of the Hill challenge. Why are you giving the game's most imbalanced hero the easiest challenge of the week?

    Hesitate between Big Boss Man or Straw Men... Why do not have made a vote for this topic too ?

    This is from GW .. not sure the name of it.. let’s go CAGE TRAP, or not for the SQUAMISH,or even CRUSHING SOULS! I personally would be intrigued to see how many perfect scores we could get. We have some amazing players, be fun to see in my opinion.. might need unlimited gas/gold/ tools for it but I’m game to try it .. have to be good star⭐️ hero tho, Sasha or Zek.

    It may not be the favorite of many, but I really like this one.

    I would say Minefield, but we did just have it and NG really needs to highlight the mines better.

    I just really enjoy that map because there are so many different strategies you can try:

    1. Shiva is actually pretty useful.
    2. Just running to the exit.
    3. Keeping threat down (on earlier levels)
    4. Hanging back at the beginning and letting special walkers that spawn on Nightmare blow themselves up.
    5. My personal favorite, pushing walkers into mines with the morningstar.

    It's a real blast.
